Cambridge Computer Services, Inc. Hands-On Senior Technical Consultant in Waltham, Massachusetts

We are looking to add another versatile Senior Technical Consultant to our elite team. This opportunity is special in that it enables you to both gain a significant depth of expertise and simultaneously stay broad and keep your skills really relevant. We get to play with all the latest and greatest technologies too!

You will be consulting with clients and integrating enterprise backup, data storage, and data archiving technologies for a diverse group of corporate clients. We are very interested in hearing from individuals with specific experience in storage, HPC, archiving, and fault tolerance technologies. However, we can train versatile, technically experienced candidates; we have a fully equipped lab environment, and a culture which emphasizes and rewards ongoing professional development and education.

Our technical positions are designed for individuals interested in developing exceptional expertise in broad range of storage and backup technologies. The nature of our work is to deliver that expertise where it is needed throughout the US. This gives our technical staff significant exposure to a wide variety of organizations and technology environments. Thus, the position involves regular, generally short, business week travel outside of the area (on the order of about 25-50%, depending on the individual).

We specifically look for individuals with exceptional communication and/or teaching skills; most of our projects include written consulting deliverables, group and/or one-on-one technical training, and knowledge transfer.

Senior Technical Consultants preferably have at least four years of relevant experience, including familiarity with:

  • Enterprise data storage technologies, such as SAN and NAS storage, Fibre Channel and iSCSI, CIFS, and NFS

  • Windows Server administration and/or UNIX/Linux system administration

  • Leading application platforms, such as MS Exchange, MS SQL, Oracle, SharePoint

  • Virtualization platforms, such as VMware vSphere, MS Hyper-V, or Citrix Xen

  • Enterprise-class backup software, such as NetBackup, CommVault, NetWorker, or TSM

And generally:

  • Be comfortable working in datacenters and server rooms large and small

  • Present a confident, calm demeanor

  • Have a Bachelor’s degree, and

  • Be currently authorized (or will soon be authorized) to work in the United States on a full-time basis

Additionally, a successful candidate will likely bring several areas of expertise listed below:

  • Cross-platform system administration experience, including user authentication in a mixed Windows/POSIX environment

  • Networking experience, including advanced switch configuration

  • LDAP or Active Directory experience

  • Experience with high-performance computing

  • Database administration experience with Oracle or MS SQL

  • Scripting experience – Perl, python, bash, ksh, and/or PowerShell

  • Technical writing, technical consulting, or training experience

  • Experience with data collection and analysis, including reporting and monitoring tools

  • Knowledge of cloud computing & storage, OpenStack, and/or object storage

  • Experience implementing large virtual desktop deployments

  • Vendor-specific SAN/NAS certifications

  • VMware VCP certification

  • Technical project management experience
